Eita [瑛太]
He might not be as hot as those Johnny's kids but has more acting skill in his pinkie toe than in some entire Johnny's groups. He's especially endearing as various quirky characters.
Kimura Takuya [木村拓哉]
In truth I'm not too crazy about him, but Kimura is a legend. I'll be damned if Matsumoto or Yamashita end up being the most popular guy on the site, so here's my vote.
Uchiyama Rina [内山理名]
Talented, versatile, and very pretty. Steals the show, even when she's a supporting character.
Ueno Juri [上野樹里]
In truth, I haven't seen her in too many shows. But after watching a few episodes of "Nodame Cantabile", then turning around and watching "Last Friends", I was blown away. I can't wait to watch her in more media, and I hope she only gets better as time goes on.
Watabe Atsuro [渡部篤郎]
Able to portray all kinds of roles with his own unique style; which something a lot of the "more attractive," up-and-coming actors lack. This guy is a joy to watch.

Overrated, but not abyssmal. It's more "feel-good" than the intended "controversial," with hit-and-miss performances from the cast.

Okay, I just didn't like this at all. It was painfully slow and I found the story to be more frustrating than anything. I hated the direction the story took around episode seven. The acting was mostly good and the scenery was nice, but I couldn't find other redeeming points to this one.

I started this drama with no big expectations, and for a while, that was manageable. Even for a silly show, the story just failed to make sense, and the acting was SO. EXCESSIVE. all the time. However, the love story aspect was actually charming, and may have redeemed the show. And then the bizarro ending killed it. This one was up and down and frustrating all around.

Rating: 9/10
I wasn't impressed until about episode five, when the political intrigue of the show increased and the story really picked up. In the end, a very charming and addicting show -- great acting, writing... and this is one of the few shows where I really liked the OST as well!

Feels more like a modern fairy tale than a manga adaption - but it's a good thing here. Funny, engaging and touching at moments.

Reminds me of cotton candy - so sweet that it makes my teeth hurt. HanaKimi is so corny with so much forced humor it makes my head hurt. This is to be said for someone who liked the manga and many of the actors that appear in it...
Hito ni Yasashiku [人にやさしく / 3ピース]
Rating: 8/10 (Watched)
This one was at times so over-the-top it was anime-like, but not annoyingly so. The interactions between the three leads, as well as the adorable performance by little Suga Kenta make this a very fun watch. The romance aspect was rather weak, but it still manages to make the list of my favorite dorama.

Every bit as touching as the 1988 animation. Ishida and Sasaki were excellent in their roles as the siblings struggling to survive, and Matsushima was stellar in her role as the torn and hardened aunt. If you don't cry while watching this, there's something wrong with you.

I've never cried so much watching a television show, ever. All of the members of Ikeuchi clan had their turn to shine as actors, even the Johnny's Junior kid. Sawajiri put her heart, mind, and body as the terminally-ill student. Got a little draggy or over-the-top at some parts, but over all a really gem.

THIS is the one that's convinced me that Matsumoto is, has, and will always be a crappy actor. It was okay, but frustrating because of most of the cast had subpar performances and all the characters were emotionally retarded.

Despite the bizarre and over-the-top characterization, I found myself liking this drama a lot. Still, I can see how frustrated some viewers might get with the cast of charas and the slow pace of the story.

A slower, more subtle, and overall more mature drama. The two male leads' rivalry in career and romance was enthralling, while their friendship and mutual respect gave their relationship another level of complexity... and by the end, I really didn't care much for Miyazawa's role in the story. Still, great acting in a character-driven story.
Last Friends [ラスト・フレンズ]
Rating: 7/10
Dramatic, even for a J-drama. Sometimes too much so, but it definitely did a good job at hooking viewers. For all it went through, it fell short of doing justice to certain issues (DV and TG)... But I absolutely fell in love with Eita and Ueno. They acted their hearts out.

Did I just watch an after-school special? Decent acting (particularly by the antagonists played by Fukuda, Hosoda and Hoshii), and the plot managed to get me hooked. Also, the changes made from the manga bugged me...

For some reason, while I found a few parts of this one really cheesy, I still ended up liking it a lot... It had heart. Yamaguchi was really fun to watch, Kimura was more palatable than usual, and I don't even know what to say about the incessant 90's house music. Classic.

Wait... what did I just watch? Matsushima was okay but her character was so frustrating I couldn't like her at all. And as usual, Takizawa was so stiff he could've BEEN a cardboard cut-out in some scenes for all I know. The plot was pretty zany, too. But I'll have to give this some points for being suspenseful.

Despite my aversion to the J-boys, I found both Kamenashi and Yamashita's performances to be pretty good. While not particularly deep or moving, I found this to be a very fun watch with a bit of heart every now and then.

A bit too silly for me at parts... It reminded me a lot of HanaDan, as well (with a bunch of classical music). It definitely picked up towards the end. A very fun watch!

Part sitcom, part crime drama, but all fun! Ohda, Fukatsu, Yanagiba, and Ikariya were all so fun to watch. I've seen many Japanese dramas call into the trap of being... too dramatic for their own good, but R&P handles itself well. You'll laugh, maybe cry, and fall off the edge of your seat and find yourself wanting more!

I loved the original Korean film, so I might be a bit biased. By episode 3, you realize that they had to add a LOT to flesh out the plot to fill eleven episodes, and I felt that all of the new points where really "typical". Not really boring, but nothing really special. It's fun to watch if you're not expecting something great.

It starts out slow, and Hayami's character IS painfully frustrating. But the second I started thinking his character wouldn't grow at all, he did, and I got sucked into this touching tale about the bonds between family. The last five or so epiodes are especially heartwrenching. Baisho's protrayal of the mother was so endearing, Hayami grew on me; everyone was so wonderful in this. Definitely one of my favorites.

I couldn't shake the fact that the whole plot was terribly cheesy; but it's meant to be a story about a girl who falls in love with a robot. After some suspension of belief, I was able to start enjoying to story, and even some of Hayami's portrayal of the android boyfriend. I have to agree with the others that felt the ending seemed rushed, but I liked it end the end.
